The study aimed at evaluating the existing differences in responses particularly from the black children as compared to the other children in the classrooms chosen for the study. This objective involved the role of questioning in socialization and language. Variation of questions was evaluated in proportion to other types of responses or utterances contained in the three circumstances, as well as the uses of different questions and the assumptions on the functions of questions as established by the author. The objective of the research work was to indicate verbal strategies, and how the resultant ethnographic data in the home and community settings could be applied in comparing the collected data in the functions of language studies carried out in the classrooms. The research involved collecting information beyond the confines of the classroom, i.e. the interactions at the children’s home and also the teachers’ homes. This provided the right criteria for effective schooling ethnography. The research also aimed at demonstrating the desirability of long term research as shown in the author intermittently engaging health in the study for a period of 5 years. The study also aimed at demonstrating the utility of incorporating a clear frame of reference for use in the study. The frame of reference used for this particular study was the ethnography of communication and language socialization. These two elements are recent developments are interdisciplinary in cultural anthropology. The study also had direct potential of application for education improvement in the classroom through the interaction of the community and the school. Research method The research presents data on the usage of questions in three different circumstances. The study setup was carried out in a city located in the Southeastern United States, known to comprise of black residents of the working class community, children from this community who attended the classrooms selected for the study, and also comprising of the teachers’ homes who teach in the mentioned classrooms. The field work was carried out for a period of five years in both institutional and community settings. Results of the study were shared and discussed among the institutional and community settings. The first phase of the study was carried out in a group comprising of only black residents with the members identifying themselves as a community, both on the basis of group membership or spatial members. This group was referred to as Trackton in order to differentiate the group from the entire public community. Majority of Trackton households had one or more of their members between the ages of 21 and 45, and worked in jobs that provided high or equal salaries to the teachers. Rulings of segregation often put black children to be taught by white teachers, in classrooms that were formerly for white students. The key focus on field work was the acquisition of language uses, ways of satisfying needs of children by learning language use, information transmission, asking questions, and convincing other children and adults that they were competent communicators. Data was collected for a period of five years while observing and participating in the classrooms and some homes for the teachers. Data collection was done across a broad range of circumstances, as well as longitudinally following the

Leedy & Ormrod assert a theory as an organized body of concepts and principles intended to explain a particular phenomenon” (2005:4). Consequently, a theoretical framework consists of various concepts, which serve as the building blocks during the process of developing a theory on the basis of deep observation of natural, physical or social phenomena under exploration during a research process.
I believe all physical things by nature are impermanent, the only lasting change occurs when it lies embedded in life. I also believe we must act in concert with others to achieve greatness in any undertaking. If there is successful change in thought, people, and patterns there should be tangible results and manifest difference.
It may sound to be controversial that takes the attention of various scholars as they analyzed it in various perspectives. For the case of the review, the summary on the points and insights of Ellis about her work would be presented first before the individual commentary by the reviewer.
Harding’s position on feminist research is that there is no single feminist method. In her article, “Is There a Feminist Method?,” Harding argued that feminists should not be preoccupied with the pursuit of a single feminist method, because this neglects the unique aspects of feminist research.
In the development of ethical decision-making, there are various stages. They include pro-conventional, conventional, and the post-conventional stages (Coon, 1986). These stages were invented by a researcher named Lawrence Kohlberg. According to Kohlberg, these three ethical decision-making stages are critical in all religions (Coon, 1986).
Notably, we can only understand philosophy from the various philosophical topics like religion, ethics, logic, epistemology, metaphysics, and politics. Worth noting is that philosophy seeks questions rather than answers and its content, respect, and
